What's amazing about the Salcedo Saturday Market is that, despite its being something like 10 years old (or more), I seem to discover new things to buy here every visit.

Salcedo is our version of a nice neighborhood weekend market, like those you'd see in communities in London, Stockholm or Paris. People selling dry goods as well as wet ones, trinkets to truffles, churros to churrascos. And through the years, there have been those that branched out to bigger things, and those that are fairly new to the Metro Manila affluent crowd or foodies that want you to try their offering.

My classic eats here include,

Tita Ope's (or mother to a classmate of mine) awesome lasagna's, lengua, callos and trademark bread pudding.

Vargas Kitchen's great butter cake and frozen brazo (they've since moved on to Powerplant aside from their Makati residence).

Ineng's barbecue (though not unique since they're now everywhere).

But I also like nice dishes like the roast duck and dimsum stall near the wet market side. I've ordered their siomai and hakaw there plus fried rice.

I also got to try the awesome House of Crisps' top quality salted egg potato chips a few months ago (order ahead to pick up in bulk here). And Truly Homemade Chips' kamote chips barbecue flavor are quite good, too. Oh, and THC too has its rendition of Salted Egg chips for pre orders.

I also love Saikoro Steak's Wagyu rice and Wagyu cubes. They sell frozen Wagyu cubes, too. Yummmmm...

On occasion, there would be a stall or two in front (Leviste St side) of the Salcedo Market entrance where they would be on a trial basis. That's where we tried last Sept caramel kutsinta from Baguio, which was pretty good, we came back the following week for that. Although we didn't see them anymore last weekend.

Our recent discovery here last weekend is Cinq. My wife got a fabulous caramel Pecan Pie from Cinq last week and we saw them here this past weekend. Their dayap tart is awesome. Just right tartness and levels of sweetness. Graham crust. Wow. The chocolate macadamia dessert of theirs is rich, too. Aside from Cinq Dessert Boutique, another nice discovery for take home is Quisina's pre prepared cook it at home salted egg chicken (seen in the pic), yummy.

For my brunch last weekend, I just had 2 piece Ineng's barbecue (the Java rice is forgettable), plus a an original Z's sausage for brunch. There are days when you don't want to overthink things and just buy things that are tried and tested. Besides, I was hungry na. 128521

Anyway, if you haven't been here yet, visit Saturday morning as it's only open every Saturday. Around 7 to 1pm. Prime time is before lunch so don't be too late. Things can get pretty hot despite the tents. But since it's December, it's a great time to dive in, discover new things. Whether it's food to eat on the spot, take home, of to gift this season, you may very well discover something new here like I do almost every visit.

I took advantage of last saturday sunny weather and went straight here, it was already approaching lunch hour so some items were already long gone like Australian Beef Burger which i would recommend trying out at least once, from my previous visits they sell out at around 11am so better come here early.  Theres the usual seller on their respective area nothing much had changed only for a few that i couldnt remember what the previous tenants were selling.

Ive noticed that bun appetite found a new place but still inside the tent area.  I didnt bought my meal from them cause i have limited budget that day.  I first went for japanese pancakes at P20 each, such sulit as it eases my hunger as im waiting for my burger.  I proceed had a cup of cold ginger beer, such a winner here, very refreshing with as little as 1% alcohol.  The quarter pound burger with price tag of 100 each was just a few steps away, took an order here before proceeding to circle my way at the market.  Afterwhich i bought milea honey, damn!!! They increase their price much faster than gasoline. Asked for discount but was lecture how low the increase in this area as compare to their other outlets.

Proceed to take buy my favorite avocado drink at 150 each. Go try out their sample so youll know which drink suit your taste.  I almost forgot to buy my rice millet but at 50 each it was probably the sosyal versoon of suman nonetheless it was really good.

Weekend salcedo market start very early like 7am till 1pm.  But its always better to come here early. 128522

I've been wanting to visit this place ever since but because it's only available on Saturdays and we usually leave BGC and go home on Fridays. 128546 So no chance at all. But just recently, my aunt and I were able to finally visit Salcedo Market! Yayy!!!! 128588🏼

The only goal was to buy from Bun Appetit but we both got overwhelmed with the choices and options available. There were so many stores selling and offering so many different things that even before we locate Bun Appetit, we were able to buy some already. 128517

First thing that caught my attention was the Taho. There's really something about Taho that makes me excited and want to order one. We got one small order for 20 pesos. 128513

Saw a stall with different kinds of Suman. There are 3 kinds available, all are from Pampanga. They have Tamales, Sa Lihia, and the "usual suman". We got 2 orders for 60 pesos each. My mom liked this that she asked me to buy again the weekend after. 128518

Then my aunt saw Ineng's. Bought 5pcs of BBQ for just 149 pesos. We liked and enjoyed how tender and yummy their BBQs are. Sarap with vinegar!!! 128525

While walking, we saw a stall preparing Japanese pancakes. We got curious (or natakam? 128517) that we tried the cream cheese and cheese flavor. For just 20 pesos per piece, not bad!

And then my aunt saw this stall that sells Fresh Chinese Lumpia. We love fresh vegetable lumpia so much (Chinese lumpia is so much better than the usual fresh lumpia with ubod or togue) and we just can't not buy if we see one. Got one order of the lumpia for just 60 pesos. We loved that the lumpia is siksik with so much vegetables inside. Yummy!! 128077🏼

And finally, the main reason why we went here... BUN APPETIT. I've been dying to try their rolls and I want to understand why a lot are still buying even though it's so expensive. One roll can already be a meal good for 2 or even 3 persons. 128518 Anyway, the goal is to try them so no turning back now. 128517128541

They only have 3 options - shrimp, crab or lobster. We were able to try both the Lobster and Crab roll. I was surprised with how small the roll was while we watch them prepare our orders. Around 6 inches or less? It was really small that I suddenly want to not buy anymore. Ang liit tas mahal!!!! 128534128543 BUT OMG. When you get to try it! First bite and you'll understand why a lot are getting this. The bun was so soft, buttery, and tasty. It may be small but it carries a lot of fresh yummy crab and lobster meat. A LOT of pure crab and lobster meat. They are very generous with the filling. We liked and enjoyed how simple yet so yummy they both were. Not sure but maybe you can ask for some more lemon and/or mayo if you want and add sriracha for that kick. I swear, it's really good! Worth the try!128076🏼

We went home super happy that we are already planning to go back again and again. 128521128517

I had a few recent discoveries that kept me coming back almost every weekend:

Bun Appetit (already reviewed on |ooloo) - so far I've tried the shrimp roll and the lobster grilled cheese. Both are great but kinda breaks the bank.

House of Crisps - the phenom salted egg chips now has a stall here till end of the year. Yay! I recently compared them to Irvin's and the Pinoy chips are saltier (likely because of our taste buds) and richer.

BAO.MNL - a Gourmand Market regular, you can now get their unique baos and the lovely okonomifries every weekend 128523

Saikoro Steak - want wagyu on a budget? Get your fix here! I can probably eat at least 5 sticks (of 4 cubes) of these before I get sick of them. Sooooo good I could just cry. They also sell a pack of frozen cubes too for delivery.

Al Halabi - this is where I get my hummus and falafel. Spell suki 128514

Be warned, it is kinda hot with the tents simulating the greenhouse effect. Even on rainy days it isn't cold here. Best to enjoy your treats in peace at the neighboring Velasquez park. When I met up with Ang-ang P there was a couple that even had a picnic blanket they spread under the big tree - so cute 128525

I almost always here every Saturday. There was a time that I messaged Kristin A and we had a quick breakfast with my friend. Salcedo > Legazpi for me. From Machang to Grilled Sweetcorn they have it here even Himalayan Salt and some porcelain wares, plants and a lot more. Must-try these skewers from one of the stalls.

Every Time that we come here, isa lang ang goal namin: to eat the grilled boneless bangus. Mahal na sya ngayon, 180 na. Dati 150 lang. Pero matindi, masarap pa din. May suki kami, yung kantong tindahan sa mga grilled. Try nyo dun.

This time, niloko namin mga sarili namin kaya eto, may ampalaya din. Di lang ako sure kung matutuwa ba ako or what kasi di mapait ampalaya e. Feeling ko naalis na mga bitamina nya nung nawala ang pait.

To make this Saturday more makasalanan, nag order dib kami ng bagnet kasi na miss ng kuya yun, wala kasi nun sa dagat.

At last but not the least, langka na masarap at matamis para sa panghimagas.

Go na sa Salcedo every Saturday!

The Beef Shawarma I bought from Bersi Gyro was just ok. Would've been better if the beef quality was better.

The churros from Don Churro was good! Even better, you can order just 3 pieces! And the chocolate dip, it was thick but it wasn't very sweet. Loved it!

My supplies are already down so need to buy items at the salcedo weekend market, woke up early but i dont want to come here too early so a little sleep and there its already 11am, went here by 12 noon and its as hot as any humid summer could be, cant believe it was just a thunderous rainy night a few hours back.

Went here with a newly wothdrawn money and an hour after its almost gone. So whats the culprit?
1. Ginger beer at 200 each bottle, totally refreshing, will be back next week for more of this.

2. Quarter Pounder Hamburger at 100, at 100 a piece its way way better than the fast food burger. This is sold at the.far end of the market.

3. Avocado Juice at 150 each, try every flavor as you can, i recommend avocado, guyabano, berries with hemp but the choice is up to you.

4. Millet rice cakes at around 50 each. Go for their bestsellers which is the plain one but the mango flavor was equally good.

5. Multifloral local honey at 485 for a bottle, bought 2 bottles, 1 to be given to a friend. Honeys a known antibacterial for cough and the likes. And by the way, their stingless bess honey was really good. A good alternative for manuka honey. It taste sweet bitter. Yes its bitter. But good for bodys natural defense.

I noticed kale here is abundant, And there it goes.... my fresh withdrawn money that i wouldnt think twice to spend on food. 128522

It's been a while since we've been to Salcedo's Saturday Market. We grabbed the chance to check it out yesterday since we were in the area. We were hesitant because it was almost 1pm already and it was super hot. Since we found a parking slot nearby, we braved the heat.

We went around all of the food stalls before deciding. Since it was almost closing time, there were some items that weren't available anymore. But a great majority of the stalls still had a lot to offer.

I saw some familiar stalls like Monster Burger, The Breadery, the kebab stall, the sausage stall, the fruit shake stall, the cotton candy cart, the dirty ice cream cart and a whole lot more.

First order of business was Manong's Bagnet Station which I reviewed in the restaurant's looloo page. We had the Sisig Bagnet from there. That Pork BBQ had generous thick servings of meat that were seasoned just right. The Tawilis tasted great but tended to shrivel when we separated them. I prefer smaller fried tawilis that are extra crunchy and I don't have to worry about the tinik. The Ensaladang Talong was good. I liked the Bagoong Balayan that came with it. Our tall glasses of Mango Shake and Apple Shake helped quench our thirst and keep us cool. I wasn't able to take note of their brands/names since we were rushing before they all closed down for the day.

Tables and chairs are set up in the middle area covered with tents. The eating area where we sat was under a tree which lessened the heat of the sun. There was another dining area near the park as well. Garbage cans are very visible and most areas were clean. There was a restroom too.

I would love to come back the next time we're in the area. There are still a lot of things we haven't tried. Crossing my fingers though that it would be much cooler the next time.

This has become my weekend habit but i see nothings wrong with it other than leaving my freshly withdrawned money half gone, and coming here with just shirt, short and sandals while other peeps are all dressed up.

The burger i got was called monsters burger, taste much likes brothers burger but i dont think its made from australian beef as advertised. The green thing is a pure avocado blend/juice, no sugar or milk, i like it, just a side note, any one prefer avocado on their sandwiches???

Also bought small pancakes at 20 each. Really good with cream cheese flavor.

Went here to buy organic local honey, but i wpuld suggest to watch out for the price, it had increased as compare to last week, i was told that it was because of the supply of their honey was abit low in this season, the flower source was multi floral as compare to sunflower last week. Also bought stingless honey as some sort of medicinal honey for my colds, its a local and cheap version of manuka honey.

One of the most organized and best weekend market we have in manila. The sosyal version of palengke.hehe..128512 what I love about this market is that they have various fresh veggies and fruits that are hard to find in other markets. I love how you can buy fresh kale, cherry tomato, beetroots and other delicious veggies. The choices for seafoods are also good but a little quite expensive compare to the ordinary market.

Since 2004 salcedo market also bring good food choices. They have variety of food stall that serve good dishes like the Pizza Morena. Their signature pizza morena is a must try. The brickoven pizza topped with creamy mascarpone, mozarella cheese and some pistachio nuts. It was so good with the drizzled truffle oil. Add some honey to add a little sweetness. We alao tried out some seafoods and streetfood like isaw and tenga. Love the grilled tuna panga.

For drinks we went for our favorite fresh ginger ale. This one is a good thirst quencher and a very healthy drink.

After eating we went another round around the market and bought some homemade dips. Try out Grace mushroom chicken spread. That was good!

Overall salcedo market is a great market to visit if you want to have a foodtrip at the same time shop for some fresh goods. Just be sure to come early the place is very sunny hot in the afternoon. 128512128076

Best time to be here is around 10am, when its not yet too hot nor too early for a saturday lunch, one must scan around the market first to prioritize what to buy coz if your like me who strolls here with only a fixed amount of money, you'll surely be short on budget. The market is not that big, its just a typical makati parking converted to a weekend market.

Coming in from tordesillas, on the left is the fruits sections that sells peeled jackfruit per kilo.

Further down is the plant area, the air plant looks cool, just bought one tobe place inside car, it looks like a some sort of dried pinoy seaweed, place it on top of a bald friends head would be instant laughtrip.

Moving on, dont ever miss the grassfed australian organic burger, hmmm, doesnt taste anything like an aussie burger but it sure looks organic, one sign is the beef pattie doesnt hold up together that much.

Dont miss the takoyaki that has bits of real tako and cream cheese pancakes, these 2 stores are just adjacent to each other.

Fan of ginger ale? Take note that its much cheaper here, same brand being sold at upscale restaurant. 200 for 1 big bottle. Resfreshing.

Missed the australian burger? Coz it rans out if you get here by 11am. Theres another good burger stall further inside the market. Taste like brothers burger at just 98 quarter pounder.

Ooh, support our local honey industry. I always buy my honey here from batangas, not a fan of honeys sold at supermarket. Organic local are always the best. Sunflower and coconut honeys are in season.

Care for some lamb meat? Theres one here... eerr moving on. Be sure to buy some Budbud gourmet suman, i guarantee you will like it, comes with coco sugar or regular white sugar.

Still got plentry of budget??? Why not try the lobster sandwich located inside the tent, its a bit expensive, hmmm.. no its really expensive 128522 but worth a try or maybe try their shrimp sandwich instead, its literally made of real shrimps. Chunks of shrimps.

Lastly, dont forget to buy some fresh juice that comes in bottle at 150 each. Flavors such as guyabano, mixed berries with hemp and bignay to name a few.

This is for Bun Apetit's Lobster Roll... Tried it after seeing a post raving about it. Simple bread, almost like an ordinary white loaf loaded with butter, not skimpy on lobster although the general size of the entire sandwich isn't huge either. The lobster itself was bland, same taste you'll get from cooked frozen lobster from seafood suppliers. No frills, no vegetables. I understand the P595 price tag but cannot see the worth on this sandwich.

Apart from the fresh and organic goods here. My personal fav would be the lobster sandwich from bun apetite. A bit expensive around 500 each. Or if tight on budget try the organic burger at 200 each from the stall on far left from entrance. Sorry forgot the name but im sure you will see it, just dont come in later than 11am, the items runs out fast 9786

It was an eventful Saturday morning. Sunny, lazy and full of people.

My friend and I went at the hottest time of the day at 12 noon. It was crazy. We went around and we almost wanted to eat everything. There's lasagna, burgers, tons of food. But we settled on Pizza Morena pizza (redundant?). It had a hint of truffle oil and it was really good. Like really good. For 350 bucks, you and a friend can half it!

For dessert, (not pictured), we ate Don Churros churros. They were 150 pesos for 6 pieces! We were contemplating at first if we should get the 3 pieces or the 6 pieces. But not being held back by a challenge, we decided to get 6.
You can opt to add cinnamon and sugar to your churros. I suggest you do as it makes it so much better. The nutty flavor really makes a difference. The dip is very rich and not too sweet too. Just the way my friend and i like it. The churros were also not that oily. Although it does get kinda hard to chew as it gets colder. So eat it while it's hot!

This market has everything random too. Like coffee beans (which i was so tempted to buy), potted plants for your desk, organic juices and a lot of stuff you usually find in your neigborhood market.
Kinda pricey I may add but hey, they also pay for the rent for their stall so. :)

Anyway, this market is every weekend I believe? And starts out as early as 7 am until 1 pm. If you come late, you'll find them packing and putting out stuff. So come early! And come in your most breezy and "presko" outfit Coz it's really hot!!! Haha

This is a weekend market that I love to tread. Lots of great food finds. With this shrimps and lobster rolls from Bun Appetit, I would like to call this home too!

Bun Appetit will be having the crab claws cocktail soon, shell free/ mess free. More reasons to go back.

I really wish I could do more of these. And the type where my brain is functioning properly and I'm not craving for my bed. 128514

Got this corndog which was actually good. Opted for no condiments as I'm really not a fan of that. Good coating on this that I can still enjoy the hotdog. For the friendly price of P35 (jumbo size), this filled my somewhat full stomach. 128523
